Col Ali Riza Bey (Sedes)

Do you have any details on the service of this man?

All I have is;

Col Ali Riza (Sedes) Commander 8th Div 1914 to Commander 6th Corps 11-14 (shown Commander 3rd Corps during fighting Murat River Line July-Aug 1916) to Commander 15th Corps 1918

I did read in Sander's book that he was fired by Enver after Sanders visited the 8th Div, and he told the truth of the Ottoman Army to Sanders.

Sanders said that after he intervened Enver reinstated him?

All this was early 1914 before the war.

I have little on this man, who commanded a number of formations during the war, or what he did post war?
